Here we are again. The ultimate statement game. The most satisfying moment of the season will either come tonight or it won't.
The Lakers are coming off of two ridiculous losses to Detroit and Washington. They will be hungry for a win. The Lakers are in disarray, threatening to mutiny against head coach Mike Clown and his non-triangle offense. A few keys to the game:
Pek: Do your best to body Bynum. He is the x-factor. Do your thing in the post. Intimidate these chumps.
Love: Get a hand in Pau's face on that mid-range. He isn't going to do anything else except maybe pretend he can still hit that fadeaway shot in the post consistently and/or be generally annoying. Shoot well, and get the Laker's bigs in foul trouble early.
Kobe: Please shoot 37+ times and alienate your teammates, especially Andrew Bynum in the 4th quarter.
Wes: Shoot well and dare the Lakers to extend their defense.
Malcolm Lee: Play a few minutes and become the next Jeremy Lin story.
Rubio: Get your first career dunk. Make it over Bynum, Derek Fisher, Matt Barnes, or Josh McRoberts
Corey Brewer: Demand to be traded back to Minnesota at some point. I know you don't play for LA, but you are missed.
Matt Barnes: Go away.
Luke: Leave World Peace wide open and help on Kobe. Just don't get within 3 feet of him or you will be whistled for a foul.
Darko: Defense. Nothing but open dunks. You could play a crucial role tonight. Accept this role and you could make another $20 million in your career.
D-Will: Be aggressive.
Beasley: Be cautiously aggressive.
Martell: Hit 3's. Play smart.
Lord Adelman: Would love to see you get a technical tonight, if for any reason other than to get the fans even more on your side.
Mike Brown: Frustrate your self-entitled, epic fail of a team as much as possible.
Lastly, fans: HATE the Lakers. For once, please.
Well, guess I'm sorry I missed this one, especially after reading the comments above. ROFLMAO!
I didn't get home to catch any of the game via any media - just caught the score on the ticker tape on "Highlight Express." From the score, it appears it might have been a good game. Suppose I'll have to go checkout the boxscore and the comments.
Refs. Whatever. Hard to see from the upper deck. I give Adelman a -10 for his inexcusable decision to matchup Luke Ridnour with a top 3-5 scorer in NBA history. And for taking Beasley out when he was providing a solid offensive spark and only had Matt Barnes to worry about.
What a tough game.
@DeROK82 Him and Rubio are legit in this biatch.
@Daddyfatsax It's amazing what a real coach can do. What would our record be right now if Rhombus was stil the coach?
man, the wolves are rocking those muskies jerseys more than the real ones. It's a good sign. Maybe they'll make the change and go old school green and blue soon.
Why does it go tons of minutes and possessions without Bynum even touching the ball??? Worst coaching ever............
Ugh, here we go again with this. Seeing exactly what we want to so we can affirm our notions about players. It was COMPLETELY Rubio's lack of a box out that allowed Barnes to go to the line, not Webster. Of course Jim Pete blames Webster instead of Rubio.
@DeROK82 We're winning, amazingly!
@CollegeWolf what score do you have? timberwolves.com has us down 97-93
@CollegeWolf Ah. I forgot I can watch this online. Why am I checking out timberwolves.com?
@DeROK82 Oh whoops, I'm a little behind I guess hahaha.
